Green Idea 3 - Making Your Own Deodorant...2

I have been using home made deodorant; 1 part of baking soda mixed with 1 part of corn starch and a few drops of Tea tree oil.   It is working well for me but I thought I should also try the beeswax version since I have some beeswax at home.

Found this recipe:
http://www.lovinsoap.com/2010/07/handmade-natural-deodorant/   --  (note:  should  add shea butter after the beeswax is melted.)

My new home made deodorant.


I don't have a deodorant stick case, so I just leave it in the small glass container I mixed the ingredients.     Happy with the result so far...

If you don't have shea butter, I suggest you use a recipe without it:

For those who wants to buy beeswax,  please contact Sylvia at sweetprettystuff at gmail dot com.   She has unrefined beeswax from US at RM15 per 100 gram.
